How’s the hours and culture in real estate tax group in PwC New York office? I’m currently in other big 4 RE group but my friend (a first year) said she really likes working in PwC and her hours so far is not so bad. Can anyone share some insights? I don’t expect a full work life balance but I would really wish that I can only have winter and fall busy seasons instead of a freaking whole year.

Stay as far away as possible from PwC RE group. It’s the worst. You will be busy from jan to oct. working 70 hours plus a week including both days of the weekend
